Sunday Morning in the Church of Beethoven

For two years, via Twitter, I have held "services" in this "church" (the only one I attend) every Sunday morning.  As I posted here last week,  real-life gatherings under this name take place everywhere from Durham to Albuquerque.  Now I'm convening the virtual service here at this new blog.  Today's service is led by Martha Argerich, offering the slow movement to Sonata No. 7 (click below then hit the  YouTube link).   My friend Tim Page once told me that this was the movement when "Beethoven became Beethoven."  And that was becoming quite a lot.
